This joyous ringer tee from the 70s comes from the New Orleans Jazz Heritage Festival in 1978. The event began at the start of the decade in 1970, featuring legendary musicians like Mahalia Jackson and Duke Ellington. New Orleans is known as the birthplace of jazz, and the festival was organized to honor that legacy. Other artists who performed at the inaugural Jazz Heritage Festival included Pete Fountain, Al Hirt, Clifton Chenier, Fats Domino, The Meters, The Preservation Hall Band, and the Olympia Brass Band.
The 1978 festival would be the second year the festival would last for two full weekends. By the 1980s, over 300,000 attendees gathered at the cultural celebration. The graphic also features the logo for Schlitz beer, a sponsor for the '78 fest.
Tag says large but this shirt fits like a modern unisex adult medium. Shirt is thin.
